How I got started with aquariums.:
My 12 year old son came home from school with a baggie with 4 unidentified fish from a science room aquarium that was being dismantled. I rushed out, bought the first tank I could find at the LFS (a 2.5 gallon), came home, put the 4 fishies (now identified as rosy red fathead minnows) in their new tank, started reading voraciously.... and 2 weeks later I had caught the bug and convinced my wife to let me start a "real" aquarium.
Why I like fish::
I'm an avid scuba diver (certified PADI instructor for almost 20 years) and love everything to do with water. Aquariums are a natural hobby!
Best advice:
Do your research before you ask questions. You will be able o ask better questions and will profit more from the answers.
